MATLAB EXPO, the annual user conference hosted by MathWorks, the leading developer of mathematical computing software, concluded today in Bengaluru.
MATLAB EXPO is in its fourth year in India and was attended by over 700 engineers, scientists, and MATLAB and Simulink enthusiasts from across the Aerospace and Defence, Automotive, Communications, Electronics and Semiconductors (CES), Energy, Industrial Automation and Machinery (IA&M), and Technology Services industries. Participants had the opportunity to learn from their peers and gain exposure to real-life applications of the MATLAB and Simulink product families to solve complex engineering and science challenges.
Mariasundaram Antony, India engineering leader, GE Energy Management and engineering site leader for GE Hyderabad Technology Center delivered the customer keynote entitled, ‘Simulation: A Key Design Aid in the Energy Industry’. He said, “It is a design challenge to simulate complex power systems involving coal, gas, and renewables – all of which vary in their ability to deliver continuous power. The ability to predict the reliability and availability of the total power system is crucial when different forms of energy coexist in the grid. GE Energy Management uses advanced simulation tools such as MATLAB and Simulink to model such complex systems with the required fidelity and accuracy.”
Jim Tung, MathWorks Fellow, delivered the keynote address entitled ‘Embracing Complexity’. “We see the growing demand for superior technologies in all spheres of life. Smart phones, intelligent vehicles, intelligent medical devices and other similar high-tech devices are an integral part of the human world today. Scientists, researchers and engineers working on these advanced and complex technologies are constantly looking for faster and smarter ways to break down and manage the ensuing complexity. With MATLAB and Simulink, they are able to create and adopt new ways to master the development of complex systems and the analysis of complex phenomena,” he said.
The conference featured parallel tracks where technical experts from MathWorks discussed the capabilities of MATLAB and Simulink and shared information on product updates. An array of customer presentations demonstrated innovative usage of MathWorks products and solutions to develop complex systems for a range of commercial and defense applications. Examples shared included:
- Aeronautical Development Establishment, DRDO: An Optimized Framework of Moving Target Detection for a UAV Application
- Ashok Leyland Technology Center: Engineering Tool Development - Codification of Legacy
- National Aerospace Laboratories: Automated Flight Data Management System for Aircraft System Identification
- Renault Nissan Technology Business Center: On-Target Rapid Prototype Simulation with MATLAB
- Samsung Research India: System Level Simulations for Cellular Networks Using MATLAB
- UTC Aerospace Systems: Rapid Prototyping-Based Design for Aerospace Application
Addressing the gathering of engineers and scientists at the conference, Kishore Rao, managing director, MathWorks India said, “The customer presentations during MATLAB EXPO 2013 revealed an impressive range of engineering and science challenges that are being addressed with the help of MATLAB and Simulink. The diverse set of industries represented in the event such as Automotive, Aerospace and Defence, Industrial Automation and Machinery (IA&M), Energy, Medical Devices, Communications, Electronics and Semiconductors (CES), Finance and many more, is testimony to the wide applicability of MathWorks tools and technologies. My appreciation goes to all our Indian customers and partners for continuing to push the boundaries of technological innovation with MathWorks products and solutions.”
